Convenient way of getting around Bangkok while avoiding the traffic. Fares were relatively cheap and covered most of the touristy places and shopping mall.

Convenient way to travel around and to beat the traffic congestion. Interior of the train was clean. Stations can get pretty congested due to number of stalls/ kiosks along the entrance to the station, especially during peak period.

Efficient, clean, cheap and trains every few minutes. Perhaps the best way to get around Bangkok. Easy to read maps too. Get yourself a Rabbit Card. We put the equivalent of $15 on each of ours. More than enough for three or four days in...More

The most convenience way no traffic problem.. Value money no time waste, would be perfect is have more room it's too clouded.

My first trip to Thailand and I was a little hesitant to use the skytrain as I usually get lost at least once . So I decided to have a go and it is the most easiest way to get around this busy city ....More

BTS is a very convenient transport to move around during peak hour. BTS is always packed with people. If you are traveling in group, taxi is better and cheaper choice as you don't need to walk too much.

Very convenient for tourists cos most of the famous shopping centers were built around those BTS stations. If you want to shop in Bangkok, better study the BTS map... You will need that!

It can get crowded but otherwise is fast and easy to use. Inexpensive. Convenient. Easy connections. Lots of stairs. If you're lucky, there will be an escalator if you have luggage.

The skytrain is the greatest transport for downtown Bangkok. Its great because can see around the city from high viewpoint.
